It’s a busy couple of weeks at KC Cheer. All teams will be competing at Jamfest Kansas City Nationals on February 16 and 17, 2019. The event is held at the Hy-Vee Arena located at 1800 Genessee St. KCMO.
Admission for spectators is $15 for one day or $25 for both days. Children (5-12) are $10 for the weekend. Military (with ID), Seniors 65+ and Children 4 and under are free. Additional Information can be found on the Jamfest Website
It is so important that all athletes are on time. These competitions will not hold our practice times, so if we are without someone at check-in, we lose our chance to warm up and practice.
This is our chance to have our hometown crowd there to cheer on our teams. Let's really show them our KC Cheer spirit and crowd support!
It is required that all athletes be at all KC Cheer performances (unless specified below) to cheer loudly for all our teams. Please pay close attention to the schedules below to make sure you are in the arena at all of the listed performance times. It is unacceptable to miss a performance because you're eating a meal or getting ready. All of these activities can and should be planned around performance times.
Our athletes love to perform for a cheering crowd! We love to have you there to watch, but remember to make some noise too! Bring on the loud voices, lighted signs, noisemakers and cowbells to support our teams.
It is super exciting to be competing against teams from all over the country right here in our city. Remember to show great sportsmanship (cheerleaders AND parents), and hospitality so teams want to return to KC for future competitions.
